A Matter of Life and Death (1946)
Peter: "Give me my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon, My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage." Sir Walter Raleigh wrote that. I'd rather have written that than flown through Hitler's legs!
Today would have been the 106th birthday of the actor David Niven, you know, if people lived that long. (Okay some people do, but I don't envy them. No thanks! That is too many years.) Anyway I bought a copy of one of Nivens' autobiographies a few months back, having heard he was a terrific storyteller (and that he knew everybody and told the tales), but I still haven't cracked it open yet. Have any of you read any of his books? He published several.
previously posted some images from the film, since it's typically-for-them gorgeous to gaze upon.
